At first blush this may appear to be a simple question to answer. Florida Statute § 95.11(3)(p) states the statute of limitations is four years. However, when does that clock start ticking is a little more complicated. In some instances, it will begin when the ordinance itself is passed. E.g. Lamar Advertisting of Mobile, Inc. v. City of Lakeland, 980 F.Supp. 1455 (M.D. Fla. 1997). In other instances, it will begin when an administrative appeal for an application is denied and finalized. E.g. Sutton v. Monroe County, 34 So.3d 22 (2009). Therefore, it is important to keep all important facts and dates in mind and consult a lawyer when need be.
